Enjoyed painting this one and I am rather pleased how the final painting turned out.
The Evening Grosbeak is a large finch that breeds across Canada and western mountainous areas of the United States and Mexico. They range in length from 16 - 22 cm and weigh between 38.7 to 86.1 grams.
Evening Grosbeak measure 3.5 x 2.5 inches and is painted on 300gsm smooth Arches watercolour paper.
Many thanks to Andy Reago and Chrissy McClarren for the reference photo.
